Honda reveals more details of new Insight prototype

2019 Honda Insight Prototype Front Side View Parked

The all-new Honda Insight Prototype will make its world debut on January 15 at the North American International Auto Show, giving consumers a first glimpse of the latest model in Honda's growing lineup of electrified vehicles.

How different? Let's back up a little first. The second-gen Insight that debuted in 2009 was a five-passenger hatchback with a raised, elongated tail that made it hard to distinguish from the Toyota Prius.

Standard or optional safety features on the new Insight will include Honda's clever LaneWatch system, which uses a camera in the right-side door mirror to display a view of the car's blind spot on the center screen as soon as the driver signals a right turn.

Honda hasn't announced the powertrain specs, but it does say that it's targeting a combined rating over 50 mpg.

"The all-new Insight embodies Honda's approach to creating electrified vehicles without the typical trade-offs". There's no hybrid in this FC generation of Civic, so the new Insight will play that role.

The Honda Accord is a nameplate that needs no introduction. In fact, Honda has confirmed the prototype previews a brand-new sedan that's set to go on sale next year. The Insight powertrain is similar to that of the Chevrolet Volt, meaning that the auto is powered by the electric motor most of the time, with the gas engine generally acting as a generator to charge the lithium-ion battery pack found under the backseat. The Insight's battery pack is located under the rear seats, allowing a full-size boot and 60/40 split folding. "The Honda Insight is anticipated to receive fuel economy ratings competitive with the best hybrids in the segment, with styling that will have universal appeal inside and out and best-in-class passenger volume".

Available luxuries will include perforated leather seating, an eight-inch head unit with capacitive touchscreen and a seven-inch digital instrument panel.

What is it? The Ioniq is Hyundai's dedicated green plaform, spawing a plug-in and a full EV along with this conventional hybrid.Key Competitors: Toyota Prius, Chevrolet Volt, Ford C-MaxBase Price:.

Launching this summer, the production version of the 2019 Honda Insight hybrid will be built in the company's appropriately named Greensburg, Indiana plant along with the Civic and CR-V. That uses Honda's latest two-motor hybrid system, which pairs a 1.5-liter Atkinson cycle engine with an electric propulsion motor and a lithium-ion battery tucked under the rear seats.
